Powerful photos. It's really important the past, and these photos capture the evil that happened there.

When I was there I met an elderly man who survived incarceration at Birkenau. He was amazed that people would travel as far as California to pay their respects. Folks if you are heading to this sight make sure you take in Krakow which is about an hour away. It's a nice old city that has a rich history and an 800 year old university. Great food. Watch for pick-pockets!

Very powerful photos. It had to feel very eerie walking through this place where so many people suffered and died.

I don't know how many here saw the show Band of Brothers, but in one of the last episodes our allied men came across one of the camps, boy, it was moving!

Very nice pictures! I've been there and you captured the mood very well. For the second picture I would have wished to see the full slogan "Arbeit macht Frei", not just the first two words... Might not seem important to most people, but if you actually understand what it means and what it meant in the context, it gets a totally different meaning... (just my two cents)

Constructive criticism and editing always welcome.
